Here's an Iray render of my Potoo.
It breeds in tropical Central and South America from Nicaragua to northern Argentina and northern Uruguay.
It is a resident breeder in open woodlands and savanna. It avoids cooler montane regions, rarely occurring over 1,900 m above sea level even in the hottest parts of its range.
It is a nocturnal insectivore (primarily flying termites, moths, and beetles) that hunts from a perch like a shrike or flycatcher.
During the day, it perches upright on a tree stump, and is completely invisible, looking like part of the stump because it stays so completely still as it perches. If disturbed by larger animals, such as common marmosets, it may break its camouflage and try to chase them away however. If disturbed by a human being, their behaviors can be quite variable: quickly flying away, trying to intimidate the intruder by opening the beak, or remaining still even when being touched.
Rendered without postwork in Iray. models include Dinoraul's Trees and my Potoo set
